Gloria Obonyo Omari
Gloria lives with her parents, two older brothers, and younger sister in Kianda village, Kibera. Gloria’s father works as a night guard but earns very little to support his four children in their education. The children are within walking distance to school. They live in a one room house made of mud and brick. They have access to water through water vendors who sell in the village.
Kibera is the second largest slum in Africa. There is no waste removal or clean water, and open sewage runs through the slum. Education comes with a high price to the children here; they must provide their own supplies and uniform, which they cannot afford. Sponsorship provides school fees, a school uniform, lunch at school, a monthly food hamper, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
